The financial advisor of host Wendy Williams Show allegedly warned the bank that the organizer seems to be “mindless,” and the bank also believes she was the victim of “exploitation, amnesia, or undue influence,” according to her team’s petition to seek to reopen the account.

The Sun can now exclusively disclose that Wells Fargo has responded to Wendy’s team and told the court it has filed a request for a custody hearing, “regarding the client’s capacity. ”

“I have submitted numerous written requests to Wells Fargo and I have visited various Wells Fargo branches in the South Florida area in an effort to resolve this issue outside of the courtroom,” she wrote.

“I am insolvent and I am at risk of defaulting on a number of payment and financial obligations, including, but not limited to, mortgage payments and employee salaries.”


As The Sun previously reported, Wendy’s claimed that Wells Fargo officials justified their decision to keep Wendy’s accounts frozen by citing their authority to “pause or refuse instructions for a proposed transaction, pending judicial or administrative measures, if they suspect financial exploitation, amnesia, or undue influence.”

The landlord’s legal team argued that the bank had exceeded its authority, in part because Wendy had not proposed any transactions that gave the bank discretion to block her access to the account.
